First you need to go to the local parts store and get a steering wheel puller and a clock spring compressor tool. You can rent them but just cheaper to buy it and return it. I got mind like 35 bucks together.
You will remove the horn button just by pulling it towards you be careful not to rip the horn wire out. Next there may be a retainer clip remove it with a pair of needle nose pliers. Next get a breaker bar or a impact gun to back the center nut off. Once off use the steering wheel puller by inserting the threaded bolts into the threaded holes directly beside the center pin. ease the puller onto the center pin and tighten down until the steering wheel starts to move back towards you continue until off. On some trucks there is a steel plate covering the housing to the left side and towards the top are two small torx screws remove them and remove the cover. Next grab your clock spring compressor and install it similar to the way you did the wheel puller you will tighten down the center bolt slightly decompressing the clock spring. as you compress the clock spring look to the center there is a small retainer clip that looks like it is made into the center pin pry the clip off making sure not to damage it and remove the compressor tool, remove the clock spring making sure to pay attention on how it comes apart you can put it all back together. Remove the turn signal switch should be 3 phillips head screws. You may need to disconnect the horn wire at this point it just turns slightly and pulls out. After you remove the clock spring you will see the lock cylinder body, follow the body towards the center pin. There will be a small torx bit or a phillips screw to it will be silver and very shinny at the end of the lock housing remove it and slide the lock cylinder out. Install the new one and reverse the steps.
hope this helps...........good luck!

could be a crankshaft position sensor located on the back side of the engine. There is a two wire plug on it and should be close to the freeze-out plugs. you will need an 8mm wrench to remove it.

SOURCE: I need to replace some dash lights in '87 cutlass supreme

The other screws are behind the woodgrain panels on either side of the speedometer cluster. The panels are held in place with metal clips and are difficult to pry loose. I did it by using a small plastic wedge that I found in a junk pile and once I had a place to start, I worked each corner of both panels until pried out. These panels could break, so go slow and be patient.

SOURCE: How to remove an alternator from a 1992 Olds Cutlass Ciera

You don't really need to remove the alternator to have it tested just take it to a repair shop and they can connect to it in the car. To replace the unit you need to disconnect the battery first. After that remove the wires remembering where they go. Make a sketch or take a digital photo like I do for when you get lost. Now on the top of the unit is a bolt that attaches the alternator to a slotted arm. This arm is the adjusting arm. Next loosen the main mounting bolt at he base of the alternator. With this done you should be able to move the unit in to get the slack needed to remove the belt. Last completely remove the main mounting blot and the alternator is lose. Revers the steps to install.

Ignition switch won't shut off on my 92 olds cutlass


Your 1992 Cutlass was the last model year not to require the drivers side air bag...You can access the ignition switch (needs replaced) by removing the steering wheel...you will need a puller to do this...as this is more than you want to do...many local locksmith shops offer this service...much less costly than a dealership...plenty of parts for your pristine Olds Cutlass are available...:) Hope this helps...

I need a simple way to change the heater core in a cutlass supreme.


If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
